I would get a cool pair of mini scissors and add it to the setting…fun…great looking and tasty!

Come and see how Sarah over at Stories created a picture perfect dresser for her Nursery. The right shade your favorite color…gorgeous hardware and just angling the legs is the secret to this beauty. I also adore how she stylized it…a look that the baby can grow with (those Foxes are just too cute). It’s classic and would shine in any home decor with the right color and hardware.
